Despite ongoing public awareness efforts by the United States government and national health organizations, the fact is that Americans fall woefully short on getting the right amount of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in their diets, leaving a large majority of the population in a state of deficiency.
At Aesthetic Assets, under the experienced guidance of registered nurses Pam Andow, Stacey Molina, and Tamara Kaye we believe in providing our clients in Scottsdale, Arizona, with advanced treatments that help them look and feel great, both inside and out. And one of the best ways to glow from within is through the right balance of vitamins and minerals, which we supply through our IV drip therapy.
Here’s a look at some of the benefits of IV drip therapy and how they can make you feel your best again.
Most of us don’t get enough vitamins and minerals
We alluded to the fact that Americans aren’t getting the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) they need, and here are some eye-opening numbers gathered by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey over the years to support this:
- More than 9 out of 10 Americans may not get enough vitamin E
- Almost a third of the population has an inadequate intake of vitamin C
- More than 4 out of 10 people don’t get enough vitamin A
- One third of the population (ages one and up) isn’t getting enough vitamin D and calcium
- More than half of the population isn’t getting adequate magnesium
- Potassium and vitamin K may also be of concern
There are many reasons behind these deficiencies, and a stroll down any supermarket aisle provides plenty. Today’s processed foods are simply inadequate in delivering much-needed vitamins and minerals.
Going straight to the source with IV drip therapy
With our IV drip therapy, we provide a mix of crucial vitamins and minerals that support your health on a cellular level. And by delivering them intravenously, we get these critical resources right into your bloodstream so they can go to work immediately.
While daily oral supplements may provide some benefit, the fact is that your digestive tract can only absorb a certain amount of the minerals and vitamins found in these supplements. As a result, much lower levels of the nutrients make it into your blood, so vitamin pills don’t pack nearly the punch that an IV drip can.
What can IV drip therapy help with?
There are many reasons why people turn to IV vitamin therapies, including:
- Cold and flu relief
- Increased energy
- Stress relief
- Better sleep
Many of our clients use IV therapy as a preventive tool to boost their immune systems, helping them ward off illness and disease in the first place.
The right amount
Many of our patients ask about how often they should have IV vitamin drips. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, and it depends largely upon what you’re trying to address. Some of our clients come in weekly while other simply come in when they’re not feeling well.
Ultimately, there’s no prescribed timeline, but we’re sure your results will prompt you to visit us regularly for a wellness tune-up with an IV vitamin drip.
